    Why is there so much dead weight?

    Pros

    Overall, people are nice. Great location, benefits OK except for vacation time. Summer hours.

    Cons

    It's so big that there is very little accountability and there is a lot of dead weight, it's a place where if you keep your head down, you can get by without knocking yourself out. Management is very decentralized and there is sort of a "not my job" attitude. Not inspiring. THere is good work going on here but a lot of departments are run so completely separately that no one knows what the other is doing. Cubicle hell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your employees get decent feedback, not just at review time. Some jobs are very high turnover because it's obvious that there is no growth.
